Sorrento Cruise Port (Sorrento Terminal Crociere) Tours

6 Reviews
Sorrento Cruise Port (Sorrento Terminal Crociere)
The bustling Sorrento Cruise Port (Sorrento Terminal Crociere) is a popular stop for cruise lines exploring Italy's southern coast of Campania. Sorrento, perched high on the clifftop above the Marina Piccola port below, is a charming resort town and destination in its own right, and also serves as a transportation hub and jumping-off point for excursions to the Amalfi Coast, Capri, Pompeii, and other destinations on the Bay of Naples.

The Basics
Sorrento is a popular departure point for shore excursions by land or sea to the most famous towns along the Amalfi Coast—Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Shore excursions usually depart directly from Marina Piccola, though some may depart from Piazza Tasso in the center of Sorrento. Sorrento has an old town of picturesque lanes lined with artisan workshops and boutiques, historic churches such as the Basilica di Sant’Antonino and the Church of San Francesco, and shady piazzas crowded with outdoor cafe tables. Corso Italia is the main thoroughfare, home to stores selling everything from designer fashions to limoncello, the coast’s traditional lemon liqueur. At the foot of the zigzagging stone staircase down the cliffside, the tiny fishing village of Marina Grande is known for its excellent waterfront restaurants.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is no train service from Sorrento to the Amalfi Coast, but buses depart from outside the train station. Note that there is limited space on the public buses, and they are notoriously overcrowded in summer. You may have to stand for the duration of the 30- to 45-minute trip.
  • The commuter Circumvesuviana train runs from the Sorrento train station to Pompeii and Herculaneum (Ercolano) at the base of Mount Vesuvius, but it’s often crowded in summer and seating is limited. Be prepared to stand for the 40-minute train trip.
  • Public ferries depart from Marina Piccola for Capri and Naples year-round, and for Ischia and the Amalfi Coast in summer. To avoid long lines for tickets and to board, consider booking a private tour by boat.

How to Get to Sorrento from the Sorrento Cruise Port
From Marina Piccolo, you can either walk up the hill to the center of Sorrento or take a local bus or taxi. The city's transport hub is in the main square—Piazza Tasso—where buses and trains depart for the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii and Herculaneum, and Naples.

Port Information
Sorrento is a tender port, meaning it’s too shallow for ships to dock right next to the shore, so allow a little extra time getting to and from your cruise ship. Sorrento is a popular tourist destination and English is widely spoken. The currency is the euro.
Address: Via Marina Piccola, Sorrento, Amalfi Coast, Italy
